Death Before Dishonor is a 1987 American action film directed by Terry Leonard.


Gunnery Sergeant Burns is in charge of the Marine Security Guard detachment at a United States embassy in the Middle East. When terrorists attack the compound, taking hostages, Burns becomes a one-man Marine Corps in an attempt to rescue the hostages and kill the terrorists.



In his 2001 book Reel Bad Arabs, Jack Shaheen suggests that Death Before Dishonor is one of the four most anti-Arab Hollywood movies ever.
